Can varicose veins disappear on their own?
A large group of people still underestimate the problem of the appearance of varicose veins of the lower limbs. Most of them still believe that they are only harmless cosmetic changes that should not be bothered with. Others believe that the problem will go away on its own without any intervention. So, what are leg varicose veins and are these beliefs correct?
In short, what are varicose veins?
Varicose veins are a permanent elongation and widening of the veins, causing them to become tortuous. They arise because of chronic venous disease. The main cause of their development is primarily venous hypertension, which is created because of damage to the venous valves, as well as obstruction, narrowing of the veins or their compression. When this happens, the blood does not flow in the right direction, i.e., there is blood stasis and backflow in the veins of the lower limbs. If the superficial veins are affected, the changes can be seen through the skin as unsightly bulges form.
Do varicose veins disappear on their own?

Initially, they cause a feeling of heaviness in the legs, numerous swellings and intractable pain. In its advanced stages, varicose veins can lead to dangerous complications such as phlebitis, thrombosis, vascular stroke, post-thrombotic syndrome and stasis leg inflammation or ulceration. However, with regular therapy, these consequences can be avoided.
